Abstract
The crisis in mainline religious advocacy in 1992 is described by laying out dangers of radical religious pluralism posed by divisions wtihin religious denominations and larger society. This project explores new possibilities these divisions demand and argues religious advocacy must regain vision and language of the common good if it is to be sustained and wield constructive influence in American politics. Empirical analysis focuses on formation in 1990 of a new religious advocacy organization, Interfaith Impact for Justice and Peace, and examines larger trends and forces that undermined advocacy models developed in the religious community in 1960s and 1970s.
